Our Team Pillars

Adult Culture

AOEU team members are trusted to do great work. Feedback is a gift. We give and receive feedback in real time and using Radical Candor—Caring Deeply and Challenging Directly. We are high functioning teams who talk to each other, not about each other. We enjoy the positive intellectual challenge of great ideas and great execution.

Bias for Action

AOEU team members have bias for action. We carry out the “See it. Own it. Solve it. Do it.” cycle successfully in both small tasks and large projects. Our team is fiercely determined to move projects forward with passion and perseverance. We know how to prioritize action items for the betterment of the mission. When in doubt, ask for forgiveness, not permission.

Pace and Change

In order to continually deliver on it’s mission, AOEU is always reinventing itself. The mission does not change, but the way we reach it will. Team members are flexible and adaptable to the fast-paced culture and do so efficiently and effectively. We work together to clarify our thinking, move goals forward and prioritize projects.

Abundance Mentality

Your success is my success. Team members focus on what we have (abundance) versus what we don’t (scarcity). We assume the best intentions in each other. We lift each other up and celebrate our team successes. We rally for the betterment of the mission.

Lifelong Learner

Team members have a growth mindset. We have never ‘arrived.’ We are experts in our own area and constantly strive for growth and breadth in other areas. We utilize the Lifelong Learning Fund to grow our skill set. Learning is both formal and informal and is shared with the team for all to benefit.

Pro Business

We believe business is a powerful way to impact the world. The more value we add to a greater number of art teachers, the closer we will be to fulfilling our mission. We are not a public school and we are not a cutthroat business entity. We are a unique hybrid institution paving our way to achieve growth and positive impact.

Whole Person

Success in all aspects of your life strengthens your work. Burnout helps no one. Successful human beings find ways to navigate the flexible work environment by balancing their work, availability, and personal lives, while keeping communication open with friends, family, and colleagues.


As a remote team, our work is flexible, and so is our communication. We transparently share our work, communicate and collaborate across platforms. We proactively pick up the phone or meet in person to form connections.

AOEU is an equal opportunity employer. All aspects of employment are based on merit, competence, performance, and institutional need. We proudly welcome prospective and active team members as unique individuals with dignity and respect. We do not discriminate or offer preferential treatment.
